    I'm just thankful we got some Super Blue. Really it would be hard to ask for more than that in a carbon steel.

    And now to cover the other end of the spectrum we're getting the K-2. Possibly the...

    Remember all those threads about RIL (framelock) design, where people gave examples of their own making that have a small cut-out and/or heavy release pressure?

    I think the thing being overlooked here is that knife lock design is inherently a compromise between safety and convenience.

    Yes, you can make a lock that will hold, look at the Extrema Ratio RAO....

    Sal, any chance we're going to see an edge profile closer to what you get with a custom?
    After chatting with Cliff I can't help but think a knife like this (especially with that name) would be...

    Maybe a little off topic, and I know it sounds bizarre, but over the years I've got the odd knife that felt like the blade was binding on the lock, worse than if you put sandpaper between the two....

    In order to significantly improve on the back lock design you have to switch to a different lock, just playing with geometry on the same design will help, but never overcome the fundamental problems....

    Thanks for that Cliff. Yes, I've been doing almost exactly as described, grind until it gets too hot to touch and (hopefully) before it changes colour.
    Though I assume that with HSS you'll have more...

    I was just having trouble remembering how things went back then.

    Here's a post of mine from 2009.

    It's just about all done on a cheap 1x30 belt sander, and just finished on stones.

    Yes the German test you describe is how I knew I was getting really thin, I was initially surprised when ZDP-189...

    Ok I grabbed my caliper and the edge on that knife is still .003-.004", and it doesn't flex like I remember when it was fresh.
    I'm just refreshing my memory here. My description of the edge bending...

    Are you sure that's a good idea Cliff?

    I once took my ZDP Caly 3 to .004 and it bent all over the place just trimming my fingernails (and I usually keep my nails fairly short and fresh).
    I can...

    The honest answer is a regular disposable razor blade system, except Spyderco would make those beautiful, thin, incredibly inexpensive wharncliffe blades out of all sorts of exotic alloys, and tell...

    Unfortunately the clip was one of the biggest problems with that knife. It felt really good in the hand, but it was physically not able to clip onto a bunch of my jeans pockets just because you can't...

    I'm still in love with my Warriors (plain and black) so it would have to be one of those. I think I'd take the black one, it would look super cool with the coating worn in.

    At one point in time buying duplicates sounded odd, but as the years go by I've seen the same behaviour pretty much everywhere. It's normal.

    Oh man I hate it when these hypothetical questions aren't actually hypothetical.

    I'm saving for the upcoming Farid Mehr K2, and I just bought a South Fork.

    Does anyone know what the target hardness of XVC 11 is? I actually can't find any information on it.
    (If XVC 11 has little variance in properties compared to M-4 then I guess I would bump it up to...

    I have a feeling a Yojimbo with a utility oriented handle would end up a lot like the Lil' Temperance, but with a Wharncliffe blade.
    Maybe we should just wait for that to come out and see if we...

    While it's possible to re-shape the tip by sharpening the edge side, it's both difficult and will eventually grind the tip back until it is no longer covered by the handle when the knife is closed.

    There were times that I wore 3-5 knives regularly. I never got tired of carrying lots of knives, but I did get tired of buying them (says the guy who just picked up a South Fork this week).

    My first thought when I saw the idea was T-shirts, which I assume does not normally fall onto your plate. I would just put the idea on the table for the next round of those.
